Originally called Lancaster, the city was renamed Lincoln after Abraham Lincoln in 1867. The name Capital City was also considered, but discarded—presumably for being just a bit too on the nose.
Nebraska State Capitol: The Nebraska state capitol building is a gorgeous old building with great photo ops for any occasion or just to wander and enjoy the beauty. The panoramic views of Lincoln are nice. Just a note: they do close the outside observation area at the top in inclement weather so check before you go it that’s what you want to see. Lots of art, neat architecture, and historical information. Admission is free and they do tours. Make sure you take the elevator all the way to the top. Great views of the city.
Sunken Gardens: Lots of people recommend this place, especially early in the morning and on summer evenings. A great combination of annuals, perennials and hardscaping. It’s so cute to watch the little ones peer into the koi ponds and squeal when a big fish darts from under a lily pad. All ages and type enjoy this place, the old gentleman who strolls at a leisurely pace, with his hands clasped behind his back is often there. Parking is limited and it can get crowded at mid-day, so plan accordingly. They often have printed lists of plants if you’re interested in using some at home. Such a beautiful display of flowers and green plants it looks like fireworks on the ground. There is a beautiful Rose Garden just across the street you won’t want to miss. Both are located near the Lincoln Zoo so why not make a Day of it!
Lincoln Children’s Zoo: Located in the heart of Lincoln this is a true treasure! Perfect for small children or anyone who wants an up close and personal look at the animals. The kids can feed animals and are given the opportunity to pet some of the animals. It didn’t seem overwhelming at all ~ just perfect.
The train ride around the zoo is the great way to either start your day or end the day at the zoo. Camels, red pandas, pony rides, penguins, tamarins and marmosets… This zoo is fun to visit.
National Museum of Roller Skating: This museum is small, but very interesting. No charge. It has the largest artifacts of roller skates in the nation! Surprise!! To think about the old skates with keys, inline skates, hockey skates, etc., It is wonderful someone is being attentive to the history. Interesting fact – the US National Championships for ROLLER sports is also in Lincoln, NE. Thus, the museum focus. Admission is free, but honestly truly worth making a contribution for anyone who has enjoyed an evening wiping up the floor with their pants, as they learned to roller skate! If you have a passion to locate and report on odd little museums, this sure qualifies it’s not large but it is comprehensive about the history of skates and skating. Imagine being able to see skates from 1814. Wow! The rest of the museum has various skates, over time, motorized skates, four wheel skates, inline skates, and skates that defy description as people just wanted to have a good time and go skating. Most people don’t realize that roller skating evolved from ballroom dancing and it is not all about hockey, speed, and roller derby! It is truly worth the visit!
Museum of American Speed: Plan to spend hours here, the collections are vast and fascinating. The exhibits tell the tale of American auto racing, including every aspect from amateur to professional. Displays include rare race cars, rooms full of shiny experimental engines, antiques and beautiful but eccentric cars like the Tucker and Duesenberg, and enchanting collections of pedal cars made for children. Adults will be thoroughly entertained by three floors of beautifully maintained and arranged exhibits. The museum has an interesting collection of old race cars, including some actual Indy cars, Model T vintages cars, custom hot rods, and pedal cars(!). It also had a couple land speed record cars. To really appreciate everything that you see, it helps a lot to go when they have guides giving tours. Edsel Ford’s personal roadster, a Tucker, a Cord, and several other one-of-a kind vehicles are on display too.
Pioneer Park Nature Center: This center has more animals and the naturalist that is there is so full of great information. They have snakes, turtles, owls and frogs. It also has a hands place to practice building a dam/lake. There are hiking trails around the pond to the suspension bridge. Along that walk lots of nature and frogs to see. This is quite a walk so need to have some good shoes and maybe some water. The newer nature center has more hands-on learning activities for kids and less animals. From this you can walk over to the bridge and see the geese and elk. It’s very cool how close sometimes they are. There is also a great park for the kids to play at. And there are a couple small ponds that you can almost always feed the geese. Make sure you go to the back of the park and see the bison. They are amazing.
From Tampa to Lincoln is a one stop flight done by most major airlines. Give TravelKatz a call at 352-277-2700 and we will make sure you and your group have a terrific vacation.
